I will never forget the day Andy left for Iraq. I was heartbroken.
And then I saw all the heart-broken children around me, begging their daddies not to leave. It made my insides hurt.
The day Andy came home I was beyond euphoric.
And then I saw all the excited children. My heart melted. I was so happy for them. Their daddies made it home. Safe. And they threw their arms around their daddies' necks and kissed them and cried on their shoulders with joy.
Today I remember our veterans. I'm grateful for them. I think of their families... their sweethearts, their children.
I also remember the fallen. I pray for their sweethearts and their children. My heart aches for them.
I don't forget. I will never forget.
